Building Healthy Habbits

Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Small but steady changes will make a big difference. Here are some tips for building healthy habits into your daily routine.

Regular exercise

  • Start small. Begin with just 10-15 minutes of physical activity every day
  • Keep it up. Increase your daily exercise routine until you are doing at least 30 minutes of exercise
  • Do what you enjoy. It could be walking, swimming, cycling or dancing – as long as it is fun and effective
  • Set an alarm on your watch or a reminder on your phone to make sure you get moving

Nutritious eating

  • Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains and proteins with less fat, like chicken and fish, in every meal
  • If you need a snack, choose healthy – peanuts, fruit, or a carrot is better than chips, pies and sweets
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day
  • Prepare your meals and snacks in advance to help you avoid unhealthy choices

Other healthy habits

  • Sleep for at least seven to nine hours each night
  • Manage your stress with relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation
  • Keep connected with family and friends for the emotional support necessary for good health
  • Focus on the positive aspects of your life and practice gratitude daily 

Tips for success

  • Make sure your goals are realistic. Start simply and gradually increase the difficulty
  • Stay flexible. Make changes to your routine if you need to, but keep moving forward
  • Get support. Join a local group or find a friend who is also keen on building healthy habits
